Description

A fabulous blend of colours, with rich velvety petals and tall flower spikes, perfect for arranging with dahlias in late summer and autumn.

Snapdragons are invaluable plants for their full flower spikes, which last well over a week in water. We sell the elegant, single-colour, tall florist's varieties, which are now very difficult to find.

These varieties have also all been bred for good rust resistance.
